This weekend the Formula 1 World Championship returns to its spiritual home at Silverstone where the first F1 race of the modern era was held in 1950. Max Verstappen has a 46 point championship lead but will be hoping for a better weekend in Northamptonshire than in 2021. Mercedes are introducing several mods to the W13, whilst Ferrari have been re-grouping.
This week we showcase items from various Formula 1 World Champions. In 1994 Damon Hill won the BGP and was presented the trophy by Diana, Princess of Wales. We have a wonderful etched paperweight that was issued to competitors that weekend, later hand signed by the 1996 WDC. Also from Damon Hill we offer a hand signed Red Bull visor as used when Damon drove the RB6 for a demonstration run during the World Series by Renault Finale 2012.
Alain Prost won the Silverstone race in 1993 en route to his 4th WDC. We have a superb black and white professional photograph mounted framed and glazed and hand signed by Alain available.
Silverstone was not one of Ayrton Senna’s successful circuits, but we have a very rare portfolio of professional photographs of Ayrton taken between 1985 and 1994 available. This boxed portfolio was officially endorsed by the Senna Foundation on 1994 and is rarely seen for sale.
Michael Schumacher has many highs and lows in Northamptonshire. We have a superb hand signed Bridgestone a podium cap new in stock as well as a wonderful wooden CNC machined large scale model of his F2003GA title winning car.
Fernando Alonso has won the BGP twice and will be hoping the resurgent Alpine will be suited to the flowing track. We have a selection of Fernando pieces including original race gloves from the 2009 ING Renault
Finally this week, we were delighted to see Max Chilton’s record breaking run at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend, officially breaking Nick Heidfeld’s record from 1999. We cannot think of a better momento from Max than a hand signed visor with Zylon strip from his Marussia F1 years. Only at MM!
Suffice to say we hope that you enjoy the race wherever you watch it from
